    Battle of the Test Innings (post-90s)

    As I was discussing in 'the great knocks' thread, there should be enough great innings in this decade to make a battle. I wasn't around for the last BOTI, so yeah.

    Would appreciate it if people started nominating (and seconding) as I have to go grocery shopping now.

    Nominations:

    Kamran Akmal 113 against India at Karachi
    Ricky Ponting 156 against England at Old Trafford
    VVS Laxman 281 against Australia at Kolkata
    Kamran Akmal 109 against India at Mohali
    RIP Craigos

    Gooch's 154* (out of 252) v the Windies (including Marshall, Ambrose & Walsh) @ Headingley in 1991.

    Atherton's 185* v SA in Joburg in 1995/6.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Both great innings, but I'm not sure if they qualify ... I took 'post-90s' to mean after 1999.

    But we can let the thread originator decide.

    A couple from my second favourite Test series

    180 Trescothick 2004-05
    132 Trescothick 2004-05
    149 Kallis 2004-05

    Also

    177 Vaughan 2002-03
    250 Langer 2002-03
    Astle's 222
    Dravid 233 Adelaide 2003-04

    Feel a bit miffed now. Had plans to start a battle of historical Test teams, but two at a time might be too much?
